I was sad to read recently about some of the personnel classifications being underpaid at the North Lincoln Samaritan Hospital; also that the employees’ health coverage fees could be garnished from their wages. In my opinion, all the classifications should be pain in accordance with the other hospitals in the area and that the employees’ health coverage should be discounted to a lower fee as long as they are employed by the hospital.
When the new hospital is completed, I assume there will be more personnel required, so how will new employees be recruited for long term employment when they may be paid lower than other hospitals in the area? They may come, but will probably not stay when they can go elsewhere and get paid higher for the same work.
My feelings are based on my own experiences with the hospital; recently I had to be admitted to the hospital. First to arrive on the scene just minutes after my 911 call was Al, from the fire department, who made sure I was safe and OK and who waited with me until the ambulance showed up. Thank you very much Al.
After that, there were too many people to name who took excellent care of me. I don’t remember all their names and would not want to slight anyone by not naming them. All of the employees were patient, respectful and professional. Thank s to their care, I feel very good. It’s a small hospital, but the people who work there wear capes (superheroes, get it?).
Thank you North Lincoln.
